The fandom is still waiting to find out if we will ever get a City of Ashes movie, but Cassandra Clare hasn’t been waiting around like us.
She confirmed on her twitter that, along with her co-writer Holly Black, she has finished the screenplay for a Magisterium movie!
I expect (although not confirmed) that will be a screenplay for the 1st book in their new series, The Iron Trial.
I also asked her to confirm who “we” are:
I want to make everyone aware that just because Cassie and Holly have written a screenplay and their books that been optioned for a movie by Constantin Film (the same studio that own the film rights to The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices), this does not mean that we will DEFINITELY get the films. Nothing is for certain in the film industry until the cameras are rolling.
But what we do know is that this is definitely a step in the right direction!
I am very excited! Are you?
